    Additional Information

    Immerse yourself in the flavors and history of Italy’s famous Chianti region with this sojourn through renaissance cities, mediaeval villages and cypress-lined avenues snaking through vineyards. Accompanied by the publisher of the award-winning magazine Canadian Geographic, Gilles Gagnier, you’ll have the opportunity to sample several varieties of the world-renowned Chianti and learn about the process that goes into making the wine. Enjoy gentle walks through rolling olive groves and vineyards straight out of a postcard, then learn about Italian wines at the Wine School of Siena. Spend a day exploring the historical sites of Florence, from museums and galleries to churches and archaeological delights. Throw on a chef’s hat and perfect your Italian cooking skills with an optional culinary class and explore the medieval towers and 13th century walls of San Gimignano. Visit the UNESCO-listed Siena which has remained virtually unchanged since the 17th Century. Finish each day at a family-run farmhouse where you can enjoy homemade meals and locally produced wine – the perfect way to relax after a day of sightseeing.
